When Alex Wallace, M.D., was 18 years old at UC Berkeley, she was saved by then-rookie officer Sam Crawford of the Berkeley PD from a traffic accident. Now ten years later, she’s become a world-class researcher working in Europe, but she returns as a newly hired medical examiner, hoping to meet her hero again.
